Western will continue to provide annual rates to the BCP Contractors by October 1 of each year using the same ratesetting formula. The rates are reviewed annually and adjusted upward or downward to assure sufficient revenues exist to achieve payment of all costs and financial obligations associated with the project. Each fiscal year, Western prepares a PRS to update actual revenues and expenses and include future estimates of annual revenues and expenses for the BCP, including interest and capitalized costs. Westerns BCP electric service ratesetting formula set forth in Rate Order No. WAPA70 was approved on April 19, 1996, in Docket No. EF965091000 at 75 FERC 62,050, for the period beginning November 1, 1995, and ending September 30, 2000. Rate Order No. WAPA94, extending the existing ratesetting formula beginning on October 1, 2000, and ending September 30, 2005, was approved on July 31, 2001, in Docket No. EF005092000 at 96 FERC 61,171. Rate Order No. WAPA120, extending the existing ratesetting formula for another five-year period beginning on October 1, 2005, and ending September 30, 2010, was approved on June 22, 2006, in Docket No. EF055091000 at 115 FERC 61,362. The BCP ratesetting formula includes a base charge, an energy rate, and a capacity rate. The ratesetting formula was used to determine the BCP FY 2007 Base Charge and Rates. Western proposes the FY 2007 base charge of $67,509,136, the energy rate of 8.51 mills/kWh, and the capacity rate of $1.63/kWmonth be approved on a final basis. Consistent with procedures set forth in 10 CFR part 903 and 18 CFR part 300, Western held a consultation and comment period. The notice of the proposed FY 2007 Rates for electric service was published in the Federal Register on March 2, 2006 (71 FR

10664).

Under Delegation Order Nos. 00037.00 and 00001.00B, and in compliance with 10 CFR part 903 and 18 CFR part 300, I hereby approve the FY 2007 Rates for BCP Electric Service on a final basis under Rate Schedule BCPF7, through September 30, 2007.
